It's up to the speller, so it isn't an Emacs problem/bug/issue.  The
characters that are word constituent are stated in the .aff file for
the language you use, and they come with the speller (and are tailored
to what the speller does and doesn't know about the word structure).
Emacs cannot fix that.
